The concert, one of the biggest Doncaster has ever seen, was originally due to take place last year, but was put back until this May because of the Covid-19 lockdown.

Now the band has announced that its entire UK Imploding The Mirage tour will be put back until 2022 – including the Keepmoat date.

In a brief statement, The Killers said: “UK and Ireland friends… We’re sorry, but there’s no way around this. These will be the same great shows, but we have to move them to next year. All tickets will be honored, so we really hope you can still join us!”

The Keepmoat show will now take place on May 24, 2022.

The tour, the band’s biggest ever, sold out in hours when it first went on sale for dates in 2020, but fans are assured that all tickets held for the original dates will be honoured and are now transferable to the corresponding 2022 show. The band has also added an extra show at Falkirk Stadium on 7th June, tickets for which go on general sale this Friday.

Imploding The Mirage is The Killers’ sixth studio album, and their record breaking sixth consecutive UK #1 LP.

Since the release of their 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, The Killers have sold 28 million albums, headlined stadiums and festivals around the world and won dozens of accolades globally.

Their last UK show was their celebrated Glastonbury headline set in June 2019, which saw them joined, in the encore, by Johnny Marr and Pet Shop Boys.
